Quality Motors is a Full-Service Shop

An industry trend in auto maintenance offers consumers an increase in the number of repair chains dedicated to specific services such as oil changes, mufflers, tires, brakes, etc. These chains claim to offer super-quick service and super-cheap prices, but are you really getting a bargain? Not necessarily.

Let’s look at oil changes and point out some differences between a Full-Service Shop like Quality Motors, and a “10 minute” shop:

  • With a Full-Service Repair Shop, you get a dedicated, industry-certified, professional mechanic working on your car. Someone who’s experienced and considers his job a career. By contrast, you could end up with a disinterested, inexperienced, between-jobs person with very little long-term commitment.
  • With a Full-Service Shop, you get a facility that can handle every safety and repair issue that might come up. Or, you could use a shop that just cherry picks all the “easy” stuff and overlooks, or ignores everything else.
  • With a Full-Service Shop, you build a relationship with a single source for ALL your vehicle’s maintenance, repair, and service. No passing the buck there! During the course of a “simple” oil change service, our mechanics are also examining your entire car from top to bottom.We inspect hoses, belts, CV boots, tire condition, radiator, fans, fluids, undercarriage, etc. Whenyou stop in for a “10 minute” service, you only get 10 minutes of service!

Vehicles today are very complex and expensive! Having all of your service and repair work done at a single location allows us to know and track your cars history. It takes the guesswork out of what was done, and what might have been missed or overlooked. The bottom line is this: thorough maintenance is money (and time) well spent.

Mercedes is developing a new fast-stopping ground-contact airbag

Mercedes is working on a collision avoidance air bag that will deploy underneath the vehicle. When sensors detect an imminent collision, the airbag will inflate and lift the vehicle off the ground by several inches. The increased friction caused by the airbags contact with the road will bring the vehicle to a much quicker stop than the tires can. It will also keep the vehicle level during an impact, minimizing the dangers associated with the vehicle’s running underneath the vehicle ahead, as happens when brakes are slammed on, causing a car to dip forward.

Carbon & Sludge build up in your engine

We can help keep sludge to a minimum!

The quality of the fuel and oils you use in your vehicle matters. As your engine is running, poor quality fuel and oil can leave behind performance robbing deposits. These deposits will gradually build up over time and cause you the following problems:

  • Premature Fuel Injector & Spark Plug Failure
  • Lower Fuel Economy & Loss of Performance
  • Hard Starting & Rough Running Conditions
  • Greatly Reduced Engine Life

So how can you avoid these problems?

  • Always use 91 Octane Gasoline or better
  • Change your engine oil every 5,000– 7,000 miles
  • Add a fuel system cleaner to the fuel at every oil change
  • Perform an induction system cleaning every 30,000 miles

Vehicles are a major investment. Proper care is money well spent.
